Republican Insiders: Go With Gonzales
From Mark Kilmer at Red State, here's a most interesting poll and a timely reminder that it's not the activists or the base that will ultimately make the SCOTUS decision. When asked whether Bush should nominate Alberto Gonzales, or a more conservative judge, to replace Sandra Day O'Connor, 29 of 54 Republican insiders went with Gonzales. Furthermore, of 54 insider Democrats, 37 say the Democrats cannot afford to try to block Gonzales. Gonzales may not be the nominee, but those who think he's out of the picture are fooling themselves.
